The European Commission said a flash estimate showed euro zone consumer morale improved to -6.5 this month from a revised -7.3 in April.

Economists polled by Reuters had expected May euro zone consumer confidence to be at -7.7.

In the European Union (EU) as a whole, consumer sentiment rose by 1.1 point to -6.2.
